Join us, Thursday, October 27th, 2022, for Darling’s biggest night out, an evening of glamour and decadence, as we proudly present The Butterfly Ball.

A symbol of resiliency, change, and hope, the metamorphosis of a butterfly is an iconic representation of nature’s transformative powers. As we emerge from our proverbial cocoons and push forward through a time of profound change, we spread our wings and lift our gaze toward the many possibilities that lie ahead. The Butterfly Ball is a life-changing event. A storied, grand affair, the Gala has raised in excess of $4 million over the past 23 years, in support of the children and families who rely on The Darling Home for Kids.

Guests will revel in the glitz and glam as they waltz the evening away. The highlight– a fundraising auction featuring a stunning array of lavish and meticulously curated items up for bid.

Join us for a spectacular affair of food, fun, & philanthropy.

Thursday, October 27th
St. Joseph’s Banquet & Convention Centre, 300 River Oaks Blvd E. Oakville
